Happy Tuesday! Isn’t it great to have Monday behind us? I was pretty productive the last few days, which is great because today it’s pouring outside and I have a lot of trouble getting motivated to do anything when it’s gloomy outside. It’s a good day for list making and closet cleaning…to get ready for the summer which is just around the corner. The last patch of snow melted overnight and the daffodils are happy. So, now…I get to dream of all the fun stuff that will fill out the summer months like trips to the beach, roller coaster rides and salads. Yep, salads. They can be fun and tasty and quick.
Like this Salmon Nicoise Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette. Very similar to a “tuna” Nicoise Salad that I had last summer in Cape May, NJ but with a tasty peppered salmon filet that’s moist, tender and super tasty. And it just sounds fancy and complicated but it’s totally not thanks to Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon with Garlicky Black Pepper & Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You just slip the Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon with Garlicky Black Pepper & Extra Virgin Olive Oil into its own parchment (included in the packaging) and let your oven do the rest. You can even have it for lunch; it’s that easy—and delicious! It takes just 20 minutes to heat.
Bumble Bee SuperFresh® is a complete line of naturally-seasoned, restaurant quality, “fish-forward” prepared seafood solutions for the home. It raises the bar for what seafood lovers can expect from frozen food! All of their seafood is no mess, and no fuss; just pure perfection, time after time. The premium Salmon and Tilapia come with their own parchment paper baking pouch and go from freezer to table in under 25 minutes. High in protein, richly seasoned with pure and simple ingredients that let the fish shine through! The newest Seared Ahi tuna item is seasoned with a few simple ingredients, seared and thinly sliced. You simply defrost in your fridge for approximately 3 hours and it is ready to plate. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® smells and tastes amazing. No fishy smells here. Because you prepare Bumble Bee SuperFresh® straight from the freezer, there isn’t any smell associated with thawing fish. And it has stayed that way from harvest to your oven unlike most of the “fresh” fish you find at the seafood counter. That means it is fresh tasting, and fresh smelling. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® offers unparalleled quality. Their seafood is “fish forward”— they have nothing to hide under heavy breading, sauces, or a long list of unpronounceable ingredients. The recipes complement the amazing protein that they start with to bring out the best of the seafood. Available in a wide variety of flavors, they’re simply something for every palate!
And it’s such a time saver when trying to create healthy, satisfying meals your family will love. This Salmon Nicoise Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette is ready in just 20 minutes and you can even use up some leftovers from prior dinners to speed up the process! These roasted potatoes are a great addition and save some extra green beans from this easy side dish to throw in, as well. The Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette is, also, ready in a flash. Every single bite of this salad is completely mind blowing and loaded with good for you ingredients. Olives, egg, greens, peppery radish….even the pickiest of eaters will be begging for more.
Simply amazing dinner in minutes, the perfect way to usher in the summer months and speed up the dinner making process. Thanks to Bumble Bee SuperFresh® for helping to make mealtime less stressful but super healthy at the same time.
